About Me

The Live Review About MeIf you’re looking for recommendations of how to spend your time in London then you have come to the right place. The Live Review is an independent news and reviews website that brings you the inside scoop of all this glorious city that has so much to offer. Whether you are looking for a recommendation on what to see at the theatre, are on the hunt for a new immersive experience or undecided on where to go for dinner or drinks, we want to help you discover fun and interesting new places to explore.

The Live Review was created in 2017 when Aaron Whittington founded the site before stepping down in December 2018. The website was taken over by Tanya Howard, writer and founder of Glam Glitz Gloss, after joining The Live Review team seven months prior as a guest reviewer. A born and bred Londoner and a blogger of almost eight years at the time of taking over it felt the perfect fit to be able to share all that the city I hail from has to offer.




A little about me, I began blogging in January 2011 and started my most recognised blog, Glam Glitz Gloss, in January 2013. When I first started I covered Beauty and Lifestyle content but the website grew and developed over the years and now it focuses on Body Confidence, Food and Travel content. In 2021 I was awarded the Community Member Of The Year Award from Blogosphere Magazine which was such an incredible honour.

Outside of the blogging world I work in Events so my day to day life is all about prepping, planning and overseeing the journey from a plan in a customer’s head to the final product. And whilst I enjoy my job I love to write and I love the haven that is my little space on the internet. I love trying new things, and knowing that my advice and reviews on an experience could help someone on the looking for a new spot to try is a great feeling.

I have always loved exploring my own city, from hitting all the classic tourist haunts to finding a new hidden gem, London just has so much to offer. There is something for everyone; whether you are an art lover, a food connoisseur, a thrill seeker or just a parent looking for something to keep the kids entertained on a weekend. I have a passion for theatre and love going to see comedy shows. I’m a real big foodie and love finding new restaurants and dishes to try out. I think that it’s really important to support small businesses as well as experiencing the “bigger” businesses and sights.
